“2014 Boston Marathon begins with a race to the starting line” on Boston.com


with headerBoston.com has published my article, “2014 Boston Marathon begins with a race to the starting line“. The story covers how marathons in the summer of 2013 were affected by runners’ desire to make it to Hopkinton for the start of the 2104 Boston Marathon. You’ll find data from summer races and interviews with runners who were motivated to qualify or improve upon their existing BQ time after the bombing at the 2013 race.

There’s also a sidebar, “Increased 2014 Boston Marathon field will have 500 more qualifier spots“, explaing how the BAA divided up the 36,000 entries into the race among qualified and non-qualified runners.
